OVP 'preparing to move' to Mandaluyong - spox

The Office of the Vice President (OVP) on Saturday confirmed plans to transfer to a new headquarters in Mandaluyong City. 

Reynold Munsayac, spokesperson for Vice President Sara Duterte, said they are "preparing to move" to the new office, which "will be able to accommodate all the co-term, casual, and permanent employees of the OVP."

"This will enhance efficiency, economy, and result in streamlined processes since all the OVP employees are within the same area. The new location will also be more accessible to the public due to its proximity to major roads and mass transportation facilities," Munsayac said in a statement.

In her capacity as the agency's head, Duterte also maintains an office at the Department of Education in Pasig City, which is close to Mandaluyong.

Munsayac thanked Mayor Joy Belmonte and the local government of Quezon City for accommodating their request to use the Quezon City Reception House, which was the headquarters of the OVP under Duterte's predecessor, Leni Robredo.

"Unfortunately, after inspection and human resource inventory, OVP has decided to look for another location that can fully satisfy its requirements," he said.

As part of her legacy, Duterte declared last month that she wanted to build a permanent residence for future vice presidents. —VBL, GMA News
